Country living

We took a break from urbanity this weekend to visit old friends who are building a beautiful place near Lexington, VA. Here's the view from what soon will be their front porch:


Clearly there's a strong case to be made for rurality. Especially when you can do this


in your front yard. I'm shown here attempting to ruthlessly mutilate a tin can. (I failed.)

Sam, too, enjoyed exercising his 2nd Amendment rights on his 16th birthday. Mrs. Urbanity also got a chance to shoot for the first time, but has forbidden me to post photos of her fetchingly firing her 20 gauge.

Our friends were wonderful hosts, and they showed us around the beautiful town Lexington (about whose historical treasures I'm tempted to gush embarassingly), Washington and Lee University, and VMI, which Sam liked, but which seemed forbidding to me.

Ah yes

it is so peaceful out in the country

especially once all the tin cans have died
